lyrics

The sky is growing darker,
There's a magpie at the gate,
Dogs are growling, black cat prowling,
and all my joints ache.
The wind just changed direction,
There's a sinkhole in the ground.
Put two and two together,
Guess I’m in for nasty weather
‘cause you just rolled into town.

One drink in and how-you-been?
And how is what's-his-name?
Or did I get him mixed up with another schmuck?
All your boyfriends look the same.
I had a complement to pay you
but it died inside my throat,
I’d like to keep the light on for you
but it burned out a while ago.

Almost midnight and everything's alright,
Maybe I was wrong?
‘Cause you're laughing at my stupid jokes,
I play the fool and we're moving right along...
But there's a feeling in my bones...

You’re asking about old friends
I haven't thought about in years,
Well they're all raising fucked-up kids
and they call their jobs "careers".
You say I'm looking thin these days -
I’ve been pigging out on Crow,
I’d like to keep the light on for you
but it burned out a while ago.

You’re killing me with kindness,
I know you mean no harm,
I'm a roadkill under your heel,
Champagne-cold and whiskey-warm,
Don't tell me where you're paying rent
‘cause I sure don't want to know.
I'd like to keep the light on for you,
but it burned out a while ago.

A quarter-to-two when you blow a fuse,
I guess I should have learned,
But I’ll pay the tab and call your cab,
and hope to God this bridge has finally burned.
Here we go!

Auf wiedersehen! Sayanora!
See you later! Goodbye.
